6/30/21

Physical: Lean, athletic 5-foot-11, 170lb frame with wiry strength found. 7.62 runner in the 60-yard dash.

Offensively: Advanced feel for the hit tool, starting at a wider, even stance with the hands in rhythm at the shoulder. Utilized a directional toe tap stride to initiate the bat head through a flat, twitchy path into the hitting zone. Maintinated low to mid 70’s bat speeds throughout the round, staying over the backside and letting an efficient swing produce hard contact to all fields. True top of the order intangibles, grinding out at-bats and living on a line to both gaps (45% line drive rate via Trackman). Increased feel for the top hand while hitting into a stiff front side, posting a T90 mph bat-exit velocity at his peak. 

Defensively: The shortstop demonstrated confident footwork, reading the ball off the bat and rounding it off right to left, downhill towards the target. Fielded cleanly off his left, funneling inward to a fluid H ¾ slot on the release (accurate, 85 mph arm, carry).

Defensively: The primary shortstop featured above-average footwork with quality angles towards the target; soft glove hand worked in and outside his body with accuracy yielding quick transfers and a live, high ¾ arm strength across the diamond (high intent; 86 mph).
